    Made mine with lite mayo. Thought it was delish. I make cuts in the carrot then use a peeler to put slivers of carrot into mine instead of grated, chopped or diced carrot. - 7/1/09

    I've always made mine w/light mayo & fat free sour cream.
    It makes it very creamy and fewer calories. I also add 1/4 cup of both red & green peppers for added crunch & extra
    veggies for those who WOULD NOT normaly eat them.
    Give it a try. It's always a big hit at all the gatherings when I bring

    Reply from ZINASP (9/20/08)
    You say the coleslaw got spoiled by the next day. Hmmmm? Did you leave it out of the fridge? I've made this for over 30 years and it's never let me down. We eat it for several days with no problem. . .wonder what could have happened!! Z

    isn't it one cup cabbage per serving? the cabbage "shrinks" when it stands.
    celery seed sounds interesting. caraway seed is great on cauliflower, so it makes sense that celery seed is good on cabbage.

    This sounds like the coleslaw I make, but I use light mayo, white or rice vinegar, and splenda to taste instead of sugar for a very low calorie side dish. I think it tastes fine with the substitutions. - 6/8/08
